House Paint Portraiture from 2012

Added on by giuseppe ragozzino.

In 2012 I came across dozens of half-used gallons of interior house paint and decided to do a series of portraits with them rather than throw them out. This is my favorite — it felt the most like a self-portrait. 

Letting the scene in

I did this around this time of year a few years back. This is a painting that began as an exercise and turned into a scene. I don't always need an image to paint but sometimes they just come through.

An old friend

I made this for a friend I lost a few years ago, Brian . It hangs in my dining room. It's also one of my most repainted canvases. Or was. It's done now.
